Chalet C7, Chile: a refuge enclosed in the Andes

 

 

Chalet 7: designed by Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez. Extreme location among the Andes,  at an altitude of 2900 meters, for this modern and isolated chalet with an amazing view.

The architects chose to hide the house among the natural landscape so they took advantage of the difference in height of the mountain and used the local stone for construction.

So the result is a two floors house with a spectacular view of Lake Inca.

As you can see the base level is protected by a stoned wall that protects the house from the snow and it defines the first floor where are located the bedrooms and the private areas of the house.

The beauty of this chalet consists in the opening of every living and private area of the house to the outside so that interiors and landscape flows one in the other being a singular event.

On the second floor the interior space is completely open and that allows to fully enjoy the scenery and the spectacular Northern Lights.
